German design studio DING3000 in collaboration with the chemical company BASF, designed the ‘concept 1865′ which draws reference from 1865. Conspicuous with its wheels of different sizes, the velocipede was the first pedal-powered cycle in history. Along with the enlarged front wheels, this present-day velocipede rider is assisted by an electric drive. It is light, durable and very elastic, while also displaying outstanding resilience. The spring-loaded slide is pulled at the rear within the recessed grip to unlock and remove the seat. It is a ready-to-ride prototype with an electric drive and 24 polymer applications, some of which are highly innovative like the bearing less all-plastic pedals made of Ultrason or the light and puncture proof tires made of Infinergy.
